Rachel is one of the few artist’s I have worked with who’s talent goes beyond the literal interpretation of what beauty is. She has a dynamic eye that is able to process a concept on a complex level, and through her work, can communicate things that most people find to be intangible. In the fashion industry, the best work looks like no work at all.

The thing I love the most about Rachel, is she just gets it. You have an idea of what you would like to see and then she makes it more beautiful and perfect than you could have even imagined. Not only is she one of the nicest, easiest people to get along with and communicate with, she is the absolute best at what she does. She is always my first choice whenever I need an makeup artist and she has always gone above and beyond for us.

Thanks to a great referral from a close friend of mine, I contacted Rachel to do my make-up for my wedding. I went to her house for a trial and, not only was she was so friendly and professional, but she did an amazing job with my make-up. Her make-up job was flawless and gorgeous, and, I did not look “overly” done-up. She took her time explaining everything to me, and she always gives great advice on colors and products. I hope to have Rachel do my make-up for every special event in the future. I connected with Rachel so well that she also does my eyebrows every month. I have spent years looking for someone to touch up my eyebrows, and Rachel is the only person who shapes them perfectly. She is amazing and I highly recommend her!!!
